Hoorah for Immigrants' rights!
I think it's fantastic that over 100 local business closed today in honor of A Day Without Latinos. If you really think about it, everyone in America has someone in their family who, at one point in time or another, was an immigrant.
Who are we to judge? These people are hard-working and the only law they really break is the one that determines their status as citizens. So what? Most of the jobs they take do not threaten Americans in any way, shape or form. I mean, it's not like I can't get a job because some immigrant took one away from me.
And what's more, because they are working, they don't cost our government any more money than anyone else. It doesn't really matter that some of them commit identity theft. They wouldn't have to if we would just recognize their rights to begin with.
I hope that all the businesses who supported A Day Without Latinos are recognized by the public through the almighty dollar! Let's show those businesses what we think of their decision!
